I've been plugging away at the animation for this one quite a bit and there were several road blocks in the process that halted progression by several days. X0
The hair has proven to be quite the nightmare to rig and animate and I've been forced to start from scratch with several section over and over again.
All just part of the learning process with new software. I'm growing quicker as I continue advancing and certain pitfalls made during this this pic will get avoided the next time around.
Finally though its starting to come together!
There are several oddities in the movement that I need to iron out still, as well as getting the hair to flow more naturally.
I've learned a lot during this images creation and cant wait to try them out in others down the road.
I will need to find some audio / music to put to the final piece tho, any peeps got some suggestions? bonus points if their public domain. XD
Really been aiming for that ethereal movements seen in the Dragons Crown cut scenes.
Man would love to make a game using these techniques but there's still so much to learn animation wise. Not to mention only knowing enough coding knowledge to be dangerous to myself. XD
I definitely need to find more skilled peeps willing to join their powers to my own so that we can create something truly magnificent.
some of the odd pixilation seen in this gif will go away once the background is added to the final file. I left the bones visible so you could get a sense of just how many elements I've been having to fine tune and control during this crazy process.
I should have gone for something a bit more simple so early into this exploration of new technology, but I'm a glutton for punishment and do my best to avoid doing things half assed. Whole Ass or Bust. Snrk
